It’s time for a smarter approach to storage
Our increasingly interconnected world is changing the way you store and use information. IBM® Smarter Storage enables your organisation, no matter how big or small, to take control of your storage, so you can focus on gaining more valuable insights from data and delivering more value to the business.
Build a powerful storage cloud service – without complexity
Smarter Storage® enables fast information delivery, enhanced data security, and built-in efficiency for enterprise systems
- IBM System Storage DS8870 delivers up to three times more performance than DS8800 with more data security and up to 20 percent more energy efficiency
- IBM Virtualisation Engine™ TS7700 increases data security, stores up to 40 percent more data, and reduces complexity with a new GUI
- IBM XIV® multi-system management allows the entire XIV environment to be managed as a single storage pool
Smarter Storage, designed for efficiency, increases storage capacity and reduces costs
- IBM Storwize® V7000 Unified stores up to five times more unstructured data in the same space with integrated Real-time Compression
- IBM LTO-6 tape drives for the TS3500 Tape Library store twice the data in the same space, speed backups by up to 40 percent, and increase energy efficiency by up to 30 percent
Smarter Storage enables robust and agile cloud implementations
- IBM SmartCloud Virtual Storage Centre (US), Storwize V7000 Unified and XIV Gen3 enable automated storage provisioning with a new OpenStack Nova-volume driver
- IBM Tivoli® Storage Manager for Virtual Environments (US) increases data protection in VMware environments with near-instant data recovery capabilities
